This week, in response to the horrible news that an illegal immigrant killed four in North Carolina, Senators Tillis, Grassley and I introduced legislation prohibiting people with gang ties from receiving deferred deportation and other immigration benefits. The circumstances around this bill are incredibly sad and preventable.
If the President can’t take steps to ensure that Americans are safe from criminal gang members, then Congress must take preventative action. I hope that Congress will pass this law to ensure criminals cannot stay in this country, even under this President’s edict.
